At the end of last year I know I purchased a new, 2014 diary for work. Day to a page, small enough to fit into a large handbag, but large enough for To Do lists, notes on students and summaries of meetings.
I thought I left it on my desk in my locked office on the last day of school 2013, but I returned this week and can not find it. I can’t find the notebook I thought I purchased as its companion either.
Does this mean I have lost control of the year already?
“You may want to keep a commonplace book which is a notebook where you can copy parts of books you think are in code, or take notes on a series of events you may have observed that are suspicious, unfortunate, or very dull. Keep your commonplace book in a safe place, such as underneath your bed, or at a nearby dairy.”
